Should have Stayed in the Vault
December 3, 2019
I'm a huge Prince Fan. I was so excited to see new material, things from the Fabled "Vault" finally get out into the wild so that his musical greatness would live on and on. Instead what i got was three versions of the 1999 Album, an two "Vault" CD's which contained some new material. Vault 1 was clearly the more polished stuff, but Vault 2 was t should have probably been left in the vault. There was a reason why Prince didn't release this stuff, it simply was not his best effort, its not complete or very polished. Some of the tracks sound like a kid with one of those old Casio Keyboards with simple drum patterns leaving me feel empty. There was a Promo Disc that had a number of previously released stuff, radio and promo edits of 1999, Little Red Corvette, Delirious etc in this set. If you're a giant Prince fan you're going to buy this anyway, but don't have huge expectations that this music is what you've been waiting for to change your life. Not gonna happen.
